Question about Cars & Trucks
Not sure how you determined "good" battery.
Check battery with a DMM, all lights and accessories off and no charger. A reading less than 12.3 VDC indicates failing or under charged battery.

may sound like a dumb question but you didnt by chance hook up the battery or jumpstart the car with polarity reversed by accident at some point during this process? i would check all the underhood main fuses and interior fuses as well, what is the condition of the battery post clamps? if they are badly corroded be sure to clean them very well and wash them with a baking soda and water solution im thinking one of the cables or smaller wires that hook up at the battery is broken or possibly some freak accident happend and the computers need to be flashed at a dealer. either way i wish you luck please rate -jeff

Not trying to steal your solution, but trying to clean up the unanswered page:
There are two possible answers here:
The simple one: Use your remote control's "unlock" button to reset the anti-theft system.
or a more comlex one that seems to work: (From the original post)"I found out that you remove the horn fuse, shut the doors, put the key in and unlock it two times then put the fuse back in...it resets the anti theft..."

take the positive side of the battery off for about 3 seconds and then put it back on to see if this will reset the security code

I'm assuming its an original alarm or system that came from factory or dealer. When the light blinks is because the alarm is activated. Look underneath the radio the alarm brain might be there. There will be a label on it saying alarm or security system etc. Disconnect the harness to it and try operating your vehicle.
